I use the thermacell any time there are bug around. Works great! I can finally hunt without taking a bath in DEET!

They are the only thing I've

They are the only thing I've found that works. I use one at my bait stations now I can hunt and not spend all my time slapping 'skeeters. The only drawbacks I've found is the cost of the refill kits and you can't take the fuel cylinders on commercial airlines.

They work great down here in

They work great down here in the swamp. You can buy the cover scent and doe and buck scented replacment pads aswell to kill 2 birds with one stone.

You wanna talk

You wanna talk mosquitoes...try Alaska.  But when I put a Thermacell under my seat on my bear stand, pretty soon there don't seem to be any mosquitoes anymore.  The first time I experienced it I didn't really appreciate it until I got out of the stand and found myself in a cloud.  They're awesome -- best product ever.  Even if you're bathed in DEET, the skeeters will still buzz around you.  The Thermacell puts a bubble around you, so that you're not only not getting bit, but you're not getting buzzed, either.

gotta love that deet

Can't wait to get some more of that stuff in my mouth when I'm up in my treestand this year munching on some home made jerky. Makes my whole face go numb lol.

 

 These therma cells are really worth the price. I have the carrying case and snap it on to my belt and walk around with it.

Hands down the best thing out

Hands down the best thing out there right now. I was skeptical but the first time I used it I thought all the skeeters were jsut somewhere else but it only took about 5 minutes for them to find me after I shut it off. Totally worth the money!
